Apr 9 - The Bible is America's favorite book
 

 
Tue Apr 8, 3:07 PM ET

NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - When it comes to literary pursuits in the United States most people agree on at least one thing -- the most popular book is the Bible, according to a new survey.

It came in first in a Harris Poll of nearly 2,513 adults but the second choice in the survey was not as clear cut.

"While the Bible is number one among each of the different demographic groups, there is a large difference in the number two favorite book," Harris said in a statement announcing the results.

Men chose J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" and women selected Margaret Mitchell's "Gone With the Wind" as their second-favorite book, according to the online poll.

But the second choice for 18- to 31-year-olds was J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, while 32- to 43-year-olds named Stephen King's "The Stand" and Dan Brown's "Angels and Demons."

Picks for second-favorite book also varied according to region. "Gone With the Wind" was number two in the southern and midwestern United States while easterners chose "The Lord of the Rings" and westerners opted for "The Stand."

Whites and Hispanics picked "Gone With the Wind" as their second-favorite book after the Bible, while African-Americans preferred "Angels and Demons."

"Finally, they may not agree on candidates, but one thing that brings together partisans is their favorite book. For Republicans, Democrats and Independents, the top two books are the same -- the Bible followed by "Gone With the Wind."

Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code," "To k!ll a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee, "Angels and Demons" by Dan Brown, "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand and "Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger rounded out the top 10 favorite.

Funny how the bible means nothing in Japan. A society just as advanced as ours, yet surprisingly less crime. Perhaps people should worry more about what the bible preaches, than preaching the bible.

Of course the bible wont mean sh*t in japan because God aint fu*king with Japan. I dont see how anyone cant comprehend That the God of the bible is only dealing with ISRAEL. The bible also says you cant choose God he chooses you. Its not for everyone... and hell is just a catholic mind trap....

They believe it b/c they have faith. I just think ppl are ignorant when they can think that something as complex as the human body and the Earth that they live on and reproduction just happened. "Yea there was probably a big coming together of particles and miraculously all of this came to be." I guess that explains everything.........but anywayz there will alwayz be doubters....hmmmm i think that it did say something about that in the BIBLE.
